This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

If you caught Despicable Me 2 at the cinemas, you’re likely already infatuated with the little yellow creatures, since the sequel’s release, it appears the love for these creatures has spread like wildfire.

I would like to give a very special thanks to Gummilutt for introducing me to Despicable Me. I would also like to thank everyone who contacted me with suggestions for this months theme.

Recolours in the Despicable Nursery: 4 bedding - 4 fitted blinds - 8 curtains - 8 wall lamps - 4 smart milk - 4 toy boxes - 4 changing table frames and 8 padding - 4 crib frames and 8 bedding - 4 highchairs and 4 seat covers - 6 armchairs - 10 wall clocks - 4 potty chairs - 6 Rugs - 12 2-tile Paintings - 12 1-tile paintings - 10 wallpapers and 2 carpets.

When I found the plush unicorn converted from TS3 to TS2 by Zx_Ta I just had to recolours that as well, the mesh is included. The highchairs come in plain colours, for those of you that wish to use other crib bedding with my crib frames, use 'moveObjectsOn' to place the seat covers on the highchair.

I was not going to do it, however, it got the better of me and I added the MALM beds, end table, dressers, BILLY bookcase, LACK side table and LAMPAN table lamp in Blue, Pink and Yellow, to match the nursery furniture. Now you can go and grab the LACK Activity Table by Honeywell and the IKEA LACK Shelves - Repository by HugeLunatic, for your Despicable Me nursery.

You will need the MESH for the fitted Blinds, it is not included you can find it HERE, you will also need Klaartje's CEP Changing table for the changing table recolours.

In my opinion fway's Crib Map Fix - DEFAULT is a must have you can get it HERE if you don't already have it.

These are not all base game compatible, FreeTime is required for the wall clock recolours and IKEA for the rugs and MALM bedroom recolours!

Had a question about installing the The PF file because the path C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\zCEP-EXTRA. Doesn't exist in the Ultimate Collection that I can see. Do you know where I should place this? Advice would be appreciated. I am very paranoid about mucking up my game putting files in the wrong place. Thanks much.

@atymer, I'm sorry hun, I don't have the Ultimate Collection and know nothing about it. Maybe someone else will be able to answer that question for you, in the mean time I will take a look around and see if I can find any information that may help.

ETA:
Okay hun, I found this path mentioned HERE, under the heading "MANUAL INSTALL TO ULTIMATE COLLECTION"-
(Program Files)\EA Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Double Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\
If you have the CEP Extras installed on your computer it looks like the zCEP Extra file should be in there.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their work...click on it.
You can also find more of my work at Leefish and Plumb Bob Keep

No frigging way! This is AWESOME! I knew you could make something spectacular out of this, but even with my high expectations you still outdid them! How on EARTH did you find a mesh to make a Fluffy? Queen queen queen *bows* Absolutely fabulous and so many great ideas.

I especially like the unicorn bedding, Fluffy, the wallclocks, and the paintings with pictures from the movies. I can't wait to build a Despicable Me room!
